The beginning of a new school year brings back many memories for me as a mother and a student. As a mother, I recall the hustle and bustle of purchasing new school clothes and classroom supplies for my children; reflecting on the summer break with a trace of sadness that it was over, but also an eager readiness to get back into a regular regime.
As a student, I also recall picking out new clothes and supplies. Actually can smell right now the #2 lead pencils and pink erasers. Loved, loved that emerald green sweater and pant set I wore the first day of middle school. Although, it was way too early to wear at that time of year. I was so very hot that day, but looked good – ha! My strongest recollection is my excitement for the new books. I loved books and enjoyed learning as I still do to this day. But school isn’t the only place to learn. You can learn in the school of life.
In life’s school, unfortunately, we can be misinformed or have experiences that leave us conflicted and confused creating negative thoughts and suffering. We may have been taught ideologies and concepts that dis-empowered and robbed us of our joy. This is when unlearning helps and heals. As Yoda from Star Wars states, “You must unlearn what you have learned.”
Eric Butterworth, the popular minister, author and positive thought advocate claimed, “More important than learning to recall things is finding ways to forget things that are cluttering the mind.” How do we unlearn and unclutter the mind?
We unlearn and unclutter our minds in stillness and quiet connecting with our hearts. Allowing unconditional love, God’s love, to purge, purify and reveal truth. Our minds infused with unconditional love negate the lies that clutter them. Then we experience more joy and peace within ourselves not contingent on outer circumstances. Consequently, we are on a continuous “summer break” while simultaneously learning and growing in life’s school.
May we unlearn… anything that keeps us from knowing to the core of our beings how deeply loved we are. And unlearn anything that robs our joy. May our minds be uncluttered of all thoughts that diminish our peace.
The choice is always ours.
